Hi， how long will it take to climb the lengai mountain? Is 1 day enough?
Yes one day is enough. It is one of the hardest climbs, but you start at midnight and you summit around 6am. You climb at night because it gets too hot during the day and also because watching the sunrise in the direction of Kilimanjaro is incredible.
I recommend you stay and climb with Engarosero Lake Natron camp. They are the best camp in the area, with a natural spring flowing through it helping you recover from the hikes in the area. They also make sure that you climb with a good guide rather than just taking a lucky dip
Sorry for such a late answer. You start climbing at midnight and you summit at 6am, for sunrise. You will then be down for lunch. Worth staying in Lake Natron a few days though as there are some great hikes around there
